    So it has emerged that Your Body was given to Ke$ha and then SNATCHED away from her when she took too long to release it. Oh the indignity. Pretty much most of the songs on the album were from sessions for other artists apparently. Theftina couldn't be arsed writing her own tracks from scratch.

    So much for those early interviews where she was saying this would be her most "organic", "personal" album yet. But "Your Body" was her best uptempo since "Genie" so fair enough.

    Wasn't Blank Page destined for Leona?

    I'm sure she came up with Army of Me herself. No one can write about stronger, wiser and smarter but Christina.

    bizarre especially since Ke$ha has co-writer credits in both albums (she's listed first in fact) perhaps she was going to change some lyrics and speed it up and rap over it

    I actually find it all quite sad. Christina obviously feels very strongly about being part of the writing process, but I imagine the label has lost faith in her to the point that she's effectively being held over a barrel.

    Yeah, but she's not credited, is she? Which makes a change from a LOT of artistes who would have DEMANED to be listed, mentioning no *COUGH BEYONCE* names

    I think you'll find Beyoncé had a lot of input on tracks like Run The World (Girls)

    There is no way those lyrics could have been written by anyone who graduated from high school

    Hmm. I think it's more likely that they bought these pre-existing 'hits' because Christina isn't in a creative space at the minute. All of her behaviour on The Voice, plus her weight gain last year etc looked like the mark of someone who just COULDN'T be ARSED and was maybe teetering on the brink of some kind of breakdown. If Christina had wanted the album to have a theme and a personal connection I'm sure she would've made it happen.

    I love how in Hollywood putting on a couple of stone = TEETERING ON THE EDGE OF A BREAKDOWN :D

    Maybe she just LIKES A CAKE.

    To be fair though, the weight piled on ever since she got the divorce, got that mugshot, the album sales collapsed. It's not a stretch to say it's the byproduct of some sort of emotional distress.

    I heard she has hypothyroidism, or what the hell is that called in English. That seems like a very possible reason or otherwise she should be eating about 5,000-6,000 calories a day constantly to look like this. And I doubt that she does...

    There are drugs for that you know. And she has a team of doctors I am sure. She's a Hollywood starlet in the 21st century. Undiagnosed hypothyroidism is not a possibility. It'll be the ICE CREAM AND PIZZA that's far more likely.

    There are old interviews where she goes on about her love of fast food. Her metabolism has changed, as it does for many people in their 20s/when they have children, and she doesn't tour anymore so she isn't keeping off the weight she would have burned in the old days. There's probably not much more to it than that.

    Yeah, she's like any other late 20, 30 something that puts on weight through the years. But unlike most, she had the pressure of the media, having an image-focused profession, numerous people probably pressuring her to stay trim, that it probably took all those personal set backs the last few years to really take a toll on her more (and faster) than most.

    If she really wanted, she has more than enough resources to get a nutritionist, PT, chef, surgery etc so I can't really feel like she's that motivated to do anything about it for the time being at least.

    She clearly couldn't care less. She's fat and it's a statement!

    no one wants to fat

    she obviously has a slow metabolism or just LIKES A CAKE (tm) and is too lazy to do anything about it

    i'm sure the convo in her head goes "oh i just put on another 10 pounds... i'd still do me though *.* *licks fingers* *winks* *has another congratulatory pie*. "

    She's always had a difficult relationship with food. She was anorexic in 2000-01, and she spoke about how the label forced her to slim down for the B2B campaign.

    The funny thing is it would be a better song (and still reasonably distinctive) WITHOUT that awful use of the sample. I quite like the verses.

    Apparently Just a Fool has ticked past gold sales now (500k). Which is more than Your Body.

    The weight's coming off then.

    Jark, you seem to spend a lot of time posting comment-free celebrity pictures these days.

    WHAT DID SHE SING?

    I wish she could acknowledge Let There Be Love as a REAL single :( It would do wonders for her inevitable appearances at PRIDE events from now on

    She looks good.

    Remember this is a SELECTED performance, not promoting the album.
